Our CITA Northwest Leagues start with the Women’s Open league on September 11th. Our Open level league has some high caliber players who are fun to watch and make you aspire for more for yourself. On Saturdays, our women’s multi-level league is available for women who work during the day but still want to keep up their game with some competitive tennis. On Wednesdays, the NW Women’s 3.5 play and on Fridays, the NW Women’s 4.5 play. Contact Ann Taylor for more information or click on “Club” to find a club near you.
As a reminder: Please contact the individual clubs to determine if Child Care Services are available at that club.
You can all be willing participants in the quest to reduce your environmental footprint by bringing your worn out athletic shoes to the clubs who are participating in Nike’s Reuse-A-Shoe program. College Park Athletic Club, Five Seasons Family Sports Club, Glenbrook Racquet Club, North Shore Racquet Club and Northbrook Racquet Club have made the commitment to collect shoes throughout the year. Once collected, shoes that are gently used are separated and given to Share Your Soles, a not-for-profit organization (http://shareyoursoles.org/) and the rest are sent to Nike’s facility in Tennessee where they are shredded and turned in to “Regrind”, which is then used for playgrounds and sports courts.
Be green and bring your shoes in to the clubs mentioned above. Then go buy another pair of shoes from them!
The Chicagoland Indoor Tennis Association (CITA) has embarked on creating our own database. The following is a quick overview of the site:
Home: The Home page is the first thing you will see when you enter www.citatennis.net. You will be in the North/Central Home page. The Home page provides you with the ability to see the Standings and the Scores of the matches. It will give you the Latest News and it will provide you with General Information under Member Services. Up at the top right hand corner you will see Northwest and Login. If you click on Northwest, you will be taken to the Northwest Division Home page. Login is for the Captains of the teams. The Login allows the captains to input their lineups, scores, players and other administrative tasks.
North/West League: The North/WestLeague tab lists all the leagues on the left hand side. If you click on one of the leagues, you will see the Standings and Schedule change accordingly. Under Standings, you will see from left-to-right, Teams, Percentage, Won, Lost, Weeks and a date (if a match has been played). The Teams are the Clubs who have a team in the league. Pct. or Percentage give you the win percentage. So, if each match is worth a possible 18 points and the team won 10 points out of 18 points, the win percentage will read 55.56%. Won and Lost are the points won or lost. It will add up the points from match to match. Weeks indicate the number of matches each team will play. In some cases you will see a team play 12 weeks in stead of 13 weeks. This is due to the Byes. Lastly, Date of Match will show the points from the match. If you put your mouse arrow over the box you will see it highlight. Click on the box and a Score Detail will show up in a separate tab in your browser.
Clubs: The Chicagoland Indoor Tennis Association’s member clubs are shown on the left hand side. If you click on one of the clubs, it will provide you with the Club’s address, phone number, web address, directions, schedules for all the teams associated with the club, along with club rosters, and club standings.
